Pittwater Place In Accordance With The Australian Government 

As we continue to adapt to Covid-19 and our rapidly changing reality, we remain committed to keeping our community informed and continuing to provide a safe environment.

In accordance with the Australian Government directive issued on 22 March 2020, we have temporarily closed the kids’ play area and seating zones for our cafes at Pittwater Place.

Our restaurants and cafes remain open for takeaway, offering pick-up or home-delivery options. Further information on takeaway options is available here.

Pittwater Place remains otherwise open and trading, with significantly enhanced measures in place to stop the spread of the virus within our centre. We will continue to provide updates on store changes in real time. A full list of store updates is available below.

Keeping you safe as we navigate coronavirus together
At Pittwater Place, we have strengthened our already stringent cleaning processes by placing a heightened focus on sanitising high-touch points with high-grade disinfectant as well as increasing the number of cleaning rotations each day. We have positioned hand sanitation stations at key points throughout the centre, for our entire community to access. We have placed Australian Government-issued information posters in our bathrooms, which outline crucial information on how you can help stop the spread of Covid-19. We have also rolled out public hygiene advertisements across the centre to reinforce preventative measures that each of us should adopt.

To protect yourself and those around you, we ask every member of our community to adopt safe physical distancing measures while visiting the centre. This includes avoiding crowded areas and maintaining adequate space of at least two metres between yourself and others when queuing or moving through the centre.

We continue to work in close collaboration with our retailers to ensure that we are all doing our part to keep our shared environments clean and safe while keeping our team members up to date with new information and advice from the relevant authorities. 

We are closely monitoring public health updates and prepared to act quickly should advice change. It goes without saying that our community’s health and wellbeing comes first.

We ask for your support in making sure Pittwater Place continues to be a place of kindness and compassion for all our customers and staff throughout this unprecedented situation. We also encourage all customers commit to social distancing whilst visiting.

With all that said, we remain open for business and sincerely look forward to seeing you at Pittwater Place.

Put your best kit on, stretch out within your 1.5 metres and enjoy a regal memory of yesteryear.
